Customize your Cancer Treatment Insurance policy

We can also help you customize your supplemental coverage to fit your needs. Riders offer coverage for specific situations and can be added for an additional monthly amount.3 Consider adding a rider for one or more of the following (these summaries contain highlights only and are subject to change):

Lump Sum Cancer Rider

For added cancer protection, our Lump Sum Cancer Rider pays 100% of your selected benefit amount, from $5,000-$100,000*, upon diagnosis of cancer. This benefit is paid in one lump sum to use in any manner you choose.

Lump Sum Heart Attack and Stroke Rider

The costs associated with an unexpected heart attack, stroke, or other heart-related surgery can be overwhelming. With our Lump Sum Heart Attack and Stroke Rider, you can receive a percentage of your selected benefit amount, from $5,000-$100,000*, subject to the maximum benefit amount, should you receive a diagnosis or procedure for a qualifying event.

Hospital Indemnity Rider

When a covered injury, sickness, or complications from pregnancy requires hospitalization, this rider will pay the selected benefit amount, from $100-$1,000*, for each day (at least 24 hours) that you are confined** to a hospital.5

Intensive Care Unit Indemnity Rider

When a covered injury, sickness, or complications of pregnancy require a trip to the intensive care unit, this rider will provide a selected benefit amount, from $100 – $1,000*, payable for each day (at least 24 hours) that you are confined** to the intensive care unit as an inpatient.

Jake's story

Jake was young and healthy. He had never considered cancer. But when one of his best friends was diagnosed with cancer, he saw firsthand the financial burden it brought. What if that were to happen to him? Jake decided to plan for the unexpected. He found out that a Cancer Treatment policy would cost him less than $1 per day2—a small price to pay, he felt.

When cancer hit him at age 37, he was overwhelmed. His Cancer Treatment policy gave him cash benefits that he used to help pay his rent and other bills. That way he could focus on fighting his cancer, instead of financial worries.
